Once I really got to thinking about vacation spots I decided that going someplace sunny and warm would be nice. The older I get the more I want to vacation where it’s not cold. Now don’t get me wrong, I enjoy spending time in the mountains and wouldn’t even mind going to Alaska or Canada to hang out for awhile, but thoughts of spending a lot of time? Nope, I don’t think so. I used to want to move to Alaska, but all that cold air stuff kind of puts a damper on it for me. Since some of my favorite memories as a child are of Florida, I thought about looking at flights to Florida and hotel prices in Key West. I am still dying to go at least once. The farthest south I have been was Key Biscayne back when I was about seventeen and for the last couple of years I have wanted to visit the Keys.

This virtual vacation thing is pretty cool, and with the hours I have been working lately, the closest I will get to a real vacation any time soon.

…and this one is the Ernest Hemingway house as taken by Andreas Lamecker…

Another warm place I would like to eventually go is the land down under. Every once in awhile I can find a decently priced flight to Australia and am so tempted to just pack up and go. One of the things that I did quite a bit of when I was ages sixteen until about twenty was road trip constantly. Even though I don’t do much traveling anymore, the wanderlust has stayed with me.

Another cool place that I don’t hear a lot about is Tenerife. I haven’t even bothered to price flights to Tenerife as it is well outside my budget right now, but that would be a blast. Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands off of the coast of Africa. Oh yeah…

I would be much more likely to try and go to Hawaii myself though since it is still part of the U.S. Even though I want to go about a million different places I there are enough places within the U.S. or one of our protectorates to last me for quite some time…
